    Default Free Agent Signings

    Thought I'd make this thread to house all the minor league free agent signings the Marlins do this off season.


    According to MLBtraderumros, the Marlins have signed outfielder Josh Kroeger. I don't know too much about him. He was a 4th round pick in 2000 by the Diamondbacks.
    --------------------
    Additionally, from Baseball America, the Marlins have signed right-handed pitcher Zach Dials, left-handed pitchers Darin Downs, Mark McLemore, and outfielderJose Durate.

    Duarte hit .300/.366/.443 for Greensboro last season, at 25

    Kroeger made his major league debut in 2004 and hasn't been back since. He hit .204/.285/.364 in AAA last season.

    The Marlins re-signed catcher/utility man Vinny Rottino.

    Also, the Marlins have re-signed infielder Tim Torress (great guy) and signed right-handed pitcher Frank Mata and left-handed pitcher Victor Garate.

    Garate's minor league #'s are pretty intriguing.

    Wow. Decent sign.

    Royals first round pick in 2003. I think like No. 7 overall?

    He blew up in the Cal League one year and was a top prospect in the Royals system for a couple years. I haven't heard much about him in the past couple years, but it appears he definitely has an approved approach although his power potential isn't closed to what it used to be.

    If he can resemble this on the MLB level, that would be awesome. He's a lefty.

    We tried to sign him last year too: http://www.timesherald.com/articles/...ewmode=default

    I wonder if he can still play center field, hasn't since 2006 (minus 1 brief appearance in 2008 with 0 balls hit to him)

    Marlins have signed former Royals infielder Ruben Gotay to a minor league contract.

    #Marlins sign veteran 3B Ruben Gotay. Hard to believe he's still just 27. Led PCL in walks last year, hit .297/.430/.477 vs. Triple-A RHPs.

    Marlins have signed right-handed pitcher Sean Watson. He was with the Reds. He's nothing special, Scott Tyler part II.

    Smart. Innings and if he pitches well, they'll just trade him to a contender.

    My brother played against Sean Watson in high school. He was actually really good once upon a time, if I remember correctly.

    Edit: Guess I did remember correctly. 2nd round pick, five years ago.

    We signed Shawn Hill. Not a bad depth signing.

    The Marlins have added some big league experienced starting pitching depth to their Spring Training roster.

    Right-hander Shawn Hill, who made four starts with the Blue Jays, has signed a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training. If Hill, 29, makes the team, he will earn $600,000.

    Hill was 1-2 with a 2.61 ERA for Toronto last year, throwing 20 2/3 innings.

    Hill broke in with the Montreal Expos in 2004. The right-hander also has pitched for the Nationals and Padres.

    He has made 44 big league starts, and is 9-18 with a 4.74 ERA.
